Excerpt from book: wards into the heavens, or inwards toward thesun, to approach the latter as a comet or a planet, should their attractive hemispheres be opposed. HEMISPHERIC ATTRACTION AND REPULSION. The effects previously described of the hemispheric attractions and repulsions upon the mass- electricity and magnetism in the steel bar, show that these two bodies form an immense ocean, encircling the superficies of the respective hemispheres of the earth. The attraction of these bodies for each other, the rotation of the earth, as well as the westerly motion necessarily given them by the attractions and repulsions of the sun and moon, will naturally produce a greater accumulation of their matter toward the equator, and a progressive diminution thereof from the latter to the poles. This equatorial accumulation seems fully verified by the swinging of the pendulum. A bar of steel, for instance, as before illustrated, whether placed on its side or its end in the northern or electric hemisphere, will always have its mass-magnetism occupying the lower part, and its mass-electricity the upper, whichever way it be shifted. Now, taking this bar and swinging it as a pendulum inthe electric hemisphere, it will be evident that as the end of it rises from the earth its electric current will flow toward its upper side, and its magnetic current toward its under side, and the farther the pendulum swings, the farther will the magnetic current run along this under side, thereby increasing its power as a lever, and enabling the attraction of the electric hemisphere to pull it back again with more ease to the earth, to whichever side it may swing. Now, it is also evident, that as the attractive power of the hemisphere increased, the vibrations of the pendulum will be shortened, as well as retarded by the incr...
